HC Deb 25 May 1830 vol 24 cc1115-6

Mr. Spring Rice moved the third reading of the Galway Franchise Bill.

Mr. J. Daly

opposed the Bill, and moved, as an amendment, that it be read a third time that day six months.

Mr. Spring Rice

argued in favour of the Bill. It was only intended to carry into complete execution the principle adopted by that House of admitting Catholics to the offices of the State as well as Protestants.

Mr. Trant

opposed the Bill, as giving the whole power of the Corporation of Galway into the hands of Catholics.

Mr. North

objected to the Bill, that it robbed the corporation of a portion of its privileges. The Charter of that town was violated by the Act of George 1st, and this Bill, instead of restoring it, was a further violation of the charter. He would vote against it.

The House divided: for the Amendment 59; Against it 77—Majority 18.
